Hello,

Autobox

DEX III around 6 litres
Rear Diff - EP90 if non LSD
Rear Diff - Shell Spirax 90 if LSD

The autobox is a definate, rear diff based on experience with my XJ40 that has a GKN Powrlok Diff and requires Spirax Super 90.

HTH,

James.

Cool, thanks!

OK, so the autobox is sorted

As for the diff I dont have a clue.... I know I have heard that if its a LSD then you should put an additive in with it?

I'm fairly sure the elite does not come with an LSD but does the MV6?

Should have said this from the start... What I wanna do is check the level of the diff oil (so fingers crossed only a top up) and change the autobox oil (so will need gaskets, new filter and Vx screwlock for the mini sump screws)

There are no problems at all with the autobox just have not had the car long and although it has a FSH, I wanna know its been done

Cheers!

Hello,

I think manual MV6's came with LSD as standard, everything else did not. Standard EP90 should be fine, but confirm in the handbook, or with someone else here for the true item :).

HTH,

James.
